Excerpts from our past Book Week in Schools production:
Featuring these 2020 Shortlisted New Zealand Children's books
For 2020 we are delighted to present a stunning new Educational Musical!
AND THE WINNER IS...
Jonno has a solid gold ambition – to be crowned champion of something. Anything! The challenge is to find out what exactly he may be able to shine at. To complicate matters, every time he thinks he has the answer Claire is there challenging him! There is a story to be told but the question is who is going to get to tell it? Get ready to cheer, sing, dance and get involved as these characters go head to head with the audience towards the moment we hear the announcement ‘And The Winner Is…’
And The Winner Is… combines a love of reading and books with a celebration of diversity and competition in a production that ties in with the 2020 Olympics! Watch a selection of the best New Zealand Children’s Books come to life, encouraging students to engage with reading in an active and energetic manner and reinforcing the idea of inclusiveness and celebration of endeavour rather than competitive results.
